PLEASE ADVISE: Milk Allergy Turned Lactose Intolerant?

I know it's been a long time since I've posted here and I'm sorry I don't have a recipe to share, but this is the first place I thought of to ask my question.

My youngest son, now almost 6, "outgrew" his life-threatening dairy allergy a few years ago.  Recently he has started having stomach pains after eating.  I have pretty much narrowed it down to gluten and dairy.

This morning, I gave him a glass of milk on an empty stomach and within 10 minutes he was complaining of a stomach ache. 

I don't know how lactose intolerance works since allergies behave differently.  Does this sound like lactose intolerance? If so, what are my next steps (besides removing milk)?

Thanks for any advice.
